Why do I Cry? — A Poetic Self Analysis
ERM: A Personal Reflection, July, 2016

 

Emotions under control.
Mostly
Neither grief nor sadness
Linger
Optimism dominates, pessimism
Excised
Joyful experiences actively
Sought
Love and caring deeply
Embraced

Still I cry!  Why?

Seeking Self-insight
Stutters
Between Objective and Subjective
Never
Revealing deep Understanding
Clearly
Questions yet remain:
Who am I?

And Why?

Psychological explanations of childhood experiences
Abound
But Personal Observation is my analytic
Base
The tool for Self-analysis is Poetic
Reflection
What language best captures the personal turmoil of
Soul?

Why do different settings frame different
Emotions?
Why do Emotional Responses overwhelm
Rationality?

For me, situations involving Familial Caring and Compassion–
Love
Whether empathically sourced in embracing others or
Self
Invariably brings vocal chokings, tears, sobbing, even social
Embarrassment

But hey!  No Apologies! Who can control the emotional
Power of Love?
